Dating online photo service

So I’m thinking of upgrading mine to get out of this dry spell.

Using Photoshop, a pro can take a casual picture and quickly turn it into a professional one by changing the background. You're also setting them up to be attracted to your friend instead of you.

A good picture will help you stand out from the rest of the pack, who usually post not-so-great photos of themselves, and it can get you noticed quicker by the people you want to date. Let them find your friend in his or her own profile.

You might be more comfortable wearing sweatpants at home, but that doesn’t mean you wear it to a job interview. And nothing gives you a better chance to get a first date than an amazing photo of you at your BEST.

That said, I’ve always held onto this one photography maxim in regards to online dating profiles: Which is why it baffles me that people take professional headshots and then put up a few god-awful mug shots drunkenly taken on a webcam. That kind of stuff, which reveals a personality that pro shots tend to obscure….

This doesn’t mean posting a photo from five years and twenty pounds ago.

But if it means getting a clear, digital, close-up of you smiling with your hair and makeup done just right, I wholeheartedly endorse it.

Lately, though, I have this weird dry spell: I still get contacted, but can’t seem to make it to a first date.

I know that you recommend that people use really great, perhaps professionally done, photos.

It is the key for opening the door to being contacted on dating sites. Men love a woman's smile and it's often the first thing they will notice about you. I understand how you might feel about your post-50 body these days.
